The fight over taxation wasn’t just a part of the American Revolution. It continued after the war was resolved. When the federal government placed a tax on whiskey in 1791, farmers in Pennsylvania, who depended on selling whiskey to make ends meet, were outraged. They took up arms and attacked federal tax collectors. President George Washington used several tactics to quell the insurrection. The full story of the Whiskey Rebellion, as it was called, is recounted in this volume, along with discussion of its repercussions on domestic policy. Young historians will especially appreciate the vivid images of the incident and those involved.
